SYNAPS V/UHF SDR Family
The SYNAPS family of Software Defined Radios (SDR) is an easy-to-adapt radio solution for the network-centric transformation of all forces.
Fully SCA and ESSOR compliant, SYNAPS SDR technology offers exceptional operational flexibility and meets the sovereignty requirements of each individual customer.
The SYNAPS family is a comprehensive range of products, including hand-held, vehicular, airborne, naval and fixed-site versions, using advanced waveforms to connect all actors deployed in the theatre of operations.
SYNAPS introduces the new Thales-designed high-data-rate ah-hoc networking waveforms AirPower and UHF-Command/UHF-Combat to deliver the connectivity required to deploy advanced collaborative combat capabilities respectively airborne and land operations.
With SYNAPS-EASY, an automated network planning tool, SYNAPS network initialisation files can be generated easily from a high level Order Of Battle description.
In addition to these advanced capabilities, SYNAPS provides the waveforms previously available through the NextW@ve SDR family. This preserves interoperability with current NATO and national secure modes, which will continue to be required alongside the deployment of the new networking waveforms. Particularly for NATO interoperability, the SYNAPS family supports the latest edition of the SATURN standard (STANAG 4372 ED4), which will be mandatory in 2024 to replace Have Quick I/II, and is ready for the SEDR evolution (SATURN Enhanced Data Rate).
